Meanwhile, Northampton continue to be perplexed by their defeat in Limerick last weekend, "We can't actually figure out how we've lost the game." said scrum-half Lee Dickson. "Everyone's run themselves into the ground. We've defended well, we've done everything right and I think we were the better team."
"We played all the rugby. We deserved to win. We know that we're a really good team." But if Dickson isn't quite sure how they lost, his coach Jim Mallinder is, "We will look at ourselves but I think the game did hinge on some crucial refereeing decisions."
"I think he (Nigel Owens) just got quite a lot wrong, it's as simple as that. Sometimes you don't always get the rub of the green and I think we'll look back and say we didn't quite get it."
